September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the Summit County Library joins with the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to make sure that every student has the most important school supply of all — a free library card.

Resources at the Main Library in Frisco, North Branch in Silverthorne and South Branch in Breckenridge are available to anyone who is a county resident or property owner, nonresident employed in Summit County, a current Colorado Library Card holder or who has purchased a gift card for $10 only in September.

“Our library provides a welcoming atmosphere for all Summit County students and residents where they can explore, discover and create,” said Joyce Dierauer, executive director. “Students learn in a variety of ways, thanks to the resources available at the library. We can meet the needs of all ages and types of learners. Whether that is through homework help, young adult reading programs or access to print and e-books, the library has something for everyone — all with a free library card.”

Library cardholders can turn to the library for materials, programs and services. Registered cardholders can use their library cards from home, too. The library offers access to resources that everyone can access with a library card, such as e-books, online homework help and online databases.

During the month of September, past cardholders can return an old library card and receive a new card with a Hershey kiss. If you lost your card or it was stolen, a new card will be issued free of charge.
